All cited fossil localities in Garfield and western McCone counties are cataloged in the records of the University of California Museum of Paleontology (UCMP) and their identifying numbers presented in the following format: V-73080. Catalog numbers of individual specimens are preceded by their museum acronyms (see abbreviations). Online locality and specimen catalogs are available
on the UCMP website. Measurements of specimens were obtained with dial calipers and recorded to the nearest tenth of a millimeter. Ages cited in the text are taken from
2005) who recalculated the values for tephra presented in
Swisher et al. (1993) and magnetostratigraphic chron boundaries published by
Berggren et al. (1995). Following
Renne et al. (1998) and
Knight et al. (2003 erratum), the value of 65.58 ± 0.04 m.y. was adopted for the Cretaceous/Tertiary boundary, and their conversion formula was used to recalculate the other age determinations.
